A New Day!!!

I don't normally do feeling sorry for myself but goodness me I was pathetic yesterday. This cold was getting me down, the nightmare really frightened me and my energy levels had sunk way below zero. Even thinking was an effort so the garden centre trip didn't happen and in the end I spent the whole day in my pyjamas watching catch up tv on the computer. Hubby cooked a wonderful roast chicken lunch and did the washing up while I sat about like a wilted lettuce. Obviously switching off for the day did me some good as I do feel much better today. Head is still a little fuzzy and my nose is still running but on the whole I seem to have a bit more get up and go and may actually do something today even if it is only preparing and cooking tea.

There was a lonely pack of turkey mince in the freezer so that has come out. I will season it with fajita style spices and dry fry it and will serve it in tortilla wraps with sauteed peppers and onions and a homemade salsa which DD and I will eat while we watch a couple of episodes of Lark Rise To Candleford. What a nice evening to look forward to.

Ten days to due date for my new little grandchild. Bump has grown enormously in the last couple of weeks since DDIL finished work. I can't wait to meet him/her.

Well I'll go and do a bit of chopping and mixing so that the turkey can marinate for a few hours.
Thanks for dropping by.



  1. Exciting times there is nothing more exciting then the birth of a new baby. My new Grandchild a girl is due in the next week or so too. Hope you manage to shake this cold and feel better soon.

  2. Isn't a new baby just the most exciting thing?...........and this from someone who never thought she wanted to be a grandma. It's the best thing that ever happened to me-x-

  3. Sheila:

    My goodness you have been feeling poorly for a very long time and often lots of rest is what is needed to help recover.

    Not long now until the new baby arrives and I think it is much more exciting waiting to hear if it is a boy or girl. I love being a grandma to five boys. Each one is a blessing.


  4. I do seem to have had one thing after another over the last month or so Sandy and it's unusual for me not to just shake things off. Fingers crossed I am on the road to recovery now and I won't be all germy when my little grandbaby arrives-x-

  5. Glad to hear you are feeling better. I've some turkey mince in the fridge - I love the hairy bikers dieters turkey burgers recipe. I'm having them wed with salad X

  6. Oh Rachel....the turkey mince fajitas were absolutely gorgeous. Normally I would do them with sliced chicken breast but I think it will be turkey all the way now.
    Enjoy your turkey burgers-x-
